This is our 3rd time having Shari sit our two cats and if they could talk, they would say "Thank you, Shari! You always arrive on time, feed us, play with us, and make us feel special!" And if I can add to that - Shari is very professional and caring. As parents of a newly diagnosed diabetic cat, we've been worried about our cat's care while we've been gone and Shari has set our ...

We Can Be Best Buddies!

THE SALTY DOG RESORT & SPA
Your dog will love staying with us and becoming one of our best buddies! Hi, my name is Shari. My husband Casey and I would love to care for and play with your best friend(s) while you are away. Please, come visit and check us out! We have tons of doggie experience and are comfortable with all breeds, sizes, and dispositions. We prefer the small breeds simply because ...

What Shari would like to know about your dog

I have a questionnaire to be filled out by all owners prior to the dog's stay about disposition and care. I will ask for a meet and greet prior to booking and will have the document for you to complete. When you have booked your stay with me, you will receive a confirmation detail packet per dog. During the stay, I complete a schedule of daily activities, including exercise, walks, dog park visits, feeding times, amount eaten and, if medication is administered, a record of time and dose given.

DO I HAVE A BREED PREFERENCE? Yes, I prefer to sit the little guys. My house is very tiny so the room is limited. On the rare occasion that we do take dogs over 40 pounds, our rate does go up. Ask me about the rates prior to booking for larger dogs.

***I now offer AIRPORT PICK UP AND DROP OFF SERVICE. This means I come to your home, pick you and your dog up, take you to the airport and bring your dog home with me. When you return, I bring your dog to the airport to pick you up and take you both home. Rate is $20 one-way ($40 round) within 15 miles of the airport.***

When Shari watches your pet

What are the amenities here?
I have a plastic pool on my deck. It gets filled in the morning and emptied and cleaned in the evening. I have toys, collars, leashes, sweaters, raincoats, and jackets, just in case the weather changes. I can walk up to 6 dogs at a time, morning and afternoon, to the neighborhood park, the nature trails, or around the block. I have fluffy loungers and dog beds throughout the house, two large den-like crates with orthopedic mattress pads, three window seats with a view (of the street), and a large deck overlooking the grounds. I have feeding stations throughout the house for separate dining. I drive a Tahoe with a battery-operated fan in the back window and the back seats are always down flat (crates optional) for transporting dogs to and from dog parks, beaches, and the airport. All dogs staying here will be treated and pampered as if this were a luxury dog hotel...because it is.

Here's where we'll take our walks
Riverview Ball Park is up the hill about two blocks from my house. Nature Trails are a block from our house and offer mile-long walks. West Crest off leash dog park is not far from here, for an hour or two of doggie socialization. On occasional week days, we like to explore the other dog parks in the Seattle area, such as Golden Gardens, Luther Burbank, Marymoor, Fort Steilacoom, Magneson, and Grandview, to name a few. Greenlake is a great place to walk on leash. Sometimes, we like to go to the beaches.

Where will your dog sleep?
I have two separate, open crates, each with an orthopedic mattress pad & blanket covering for that "den affect." I have many dog beds around the house. Each bed is washed after every stay. Sometimes, if the dog is good and doesn't move around too much, my bed is a great place to sleep. I also have two dog mattresses with blankets and pillows on the floor. Most dogs prefer to sleep there.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I plan to spend as much time with your dog as I humanly can. I have additional help during morning hours so your dog will get that one-on-one attention he craves.

Time I'll spend with your...cat?
Yes, I sit cats in your home but do not stay the night. I stay about 1 hour daily to sit with your cat and give lots of attention. While I am at your home, I change the water, food, and clean the litter box. I will even water your plants and bring in the mail for you, if you prefer, for no extra charge. If my calendar shows unavailable, it is for in-my-home dog stays. Please send a request and tell me it is for a cat sit. I am most always available for cats.

**A note to customers; past, present and future:
Our business relies (and grows) on your positive recommendations and comments. If you are satisfied with the care your dog(s) received while staying with us, please leave a good review. Repeat customers, we know you like us, but let the world know just how much by reviewing each stay. Thanks!**
